Well preserved considering it gets flooded almost every year. Still belongs to a private family. Gives good sense of how a tube house is laid out.

It's a lovely little house where you can see Japanese and Chinese influences. The guide was lovely. You don't get much time in the house, though.

I'm surprised at the bad reviews for this little place as we had such a nice experience- we were greeted by one of the women still living in this beautiful traditional house with her family who has been there for generations and she graciously showed us around the open parts of the house. She then stopped and had tea with... More

Hoi An ancient city is great. This is one of a few "attractions" within the ancient city. It's an old house and gives you some idea of life "back then." Warning - once in you will receive more than one direct sales attempts to buy tablecloths and other items you are probably not interested in. So ... walk in, look... More

This is a fine example of old Vietnamese architecture. The tube like structure is representative as are the open patios. Intricate wood carvings and furniture. Host was not friendly but maybe she had a bad day

We toured this Old House as part of the 5 attraction ticket sold in Hoi An Ancient Town. Yes, you are greeted by a "guide" and must sit through a short presentation then a souvenir "soft sell." After that, you are free to look around the home. Beautiful architecture, I especially enjoyed the inlaid mother of pearl Chinese characters on... More

Take a few minutes to find out history of this ancient family home. It is more amazing when you remember the regular flooding it suffers

Included in your ancient town ticket, this is one of several old houses you can wonder in. Takes about 10-15 minutes if you read all the historical material. Nice for those interested in architecture and local history.
